Highwood Cemetery, High River at 3:30 P.M. Condolences may be
forwarded by visiting our website at http://www.southlandfuneral.com.
Besides Rose Lorraine, his loving wife of sixty seven years, he is
survived by his children Judith “Judy” (Harold) Jensen of Taber, Debra
(Don) Gochenour of Great Falls and Robert Meyer; grandsons Jack T.
“Jackie” Evans Jr. and Randall Scott Evans “Randy, the Cow pie kid”;
granddaughters Tamara Rose Paris “Tambones” and Kristie Lynn Clewes
“Kristie Pooh”.
He was predeceased by his older brothers Ernest Meyer and Bob Meyer
and younger brother Bill Meyer.
Cass was born in Calgary on May 11, 1927. Lorraine was born ten hours
earlier on May 10 in High River. They waited to get married on May 12,
1948 when they were both twenty one and didn’t need their parent’s
permission to get married. Cass was always proud of that fact. They
were married and sealed in the Cardston, Alberta temple.
Cass’s mother Margaretha Scheen and father Abraham Meyer, were from
Haarlem, Netherlands and immigrated to Canada and settled in the
Cardston area shortly after they were married. Abraham or “Bram” as he
was affectionately called, died just three weeks shy of Cass turning
five years old. His mother never remarried and raised three young boys
as a single mother.
Cass grew up in Cardston during most of his younger life. After high
school he attended the Calgary Business College where he met his
future wife, Lorraine.
Cass and his brother Bill learned to box at a young age and trained
together. Most people thought they were twins. Cass taught many a
young man how to box, including his grandsons.
In 1954 his young family moved to Salt Lake City where he started a
career as a retail store manager and worked for a company called W. T.
Grants. He and his young family lived in Spokane, Salt Lake City and a
few cities in southern California. Cass was transferred with the
Grants Co. to El Paso, Texas in 1963. After living there for three
years he took seriously ill and was not expected to live. The family
returned to Calgary in 1966 where he would renovate homes to
financially take care of his family.
In 1956 Cass and Lorraine adopted a beautiful baby girl they named
Debra Gail, and then a year and a half later, in 1957 they adopted
Debra’s half brother, a cute baby boy they named Robert Ernest.
In 1972 Cass and Lorraine moved to Taber and started a business
called CASS’ Family Restaurant. It was known for its ice cream
creations and hamburgers and steaks. Then in the late seventies he
moved to Lethbridge, then Calgary, then Thomson, Manitoba where he
managed large shopping malls.
Cass loved animals, especially dogs and horses. He and the Meyer clan
were avid golfers and often met for family golf tournaments in
Waterton. Cass loved to sing, play the organ, play the keyboard but he
was most famous for his love of the saxophone. He loved playing with
the Grassy Lake Oilers until his body was ravaged with Parkinson’s and
he could no longer lift his sax. For twelve years, every week he would
go to the Chinook Regional Hospital and serve the sacrament to any
Latter-day Saint that was sick and wanted that ordination. Then, if
requested, he would play the hymns on his melodeon for all to enjoy.
Cass loved the outdoors and enjoyed camping, fishing, hunting and
boating. He loved to oil paint and would give one of his creations to
anyone who wanted one of his paintings and even to those who didn’t
want them. Cass and Lorraine were also snowbirds and went to Yuma
annually for a few years. Then he was diagnosed with Parkinson and the
disease took a hold of him.
His greatest joy was his family. He was very devoted to Lorraine.
Cass spoiled his daughter Judy and she was the light of his life. His
grandchildren were more like his own children than his grandchildren
and he helped raise them.
He was a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day
Saints and served in many positions, including counsellors in a couple
of bishoprics, as an ordinance worker at the Cardston Temple with his
wife Lorraine and branch president as he served a senior’s mission
with his wife in South Africa. He served under the same mission
president in South Africa as his grandson, Jack.
Everyone who met Cass loved him. He was kind, humorous, fun to be
around and had an even temperament. Cass loved to help people and
serve them.
